DISTANT MIRROR: EXPLORING THE LIVES OF WOMEN IN TANACH

A Distant Mirror: Exploring the Lives of Women in Tanach

$29.99
More Info
 

The purpose of this book is to present you with a cast of characters who are defined by the Torah as your role models. Their voices are in the Text, the Midrash, the Talmud, the works of the earlier and later scholars, and the fruit of the pens of greats of the last centuries.

Will we ever understand their true greatness? The answer is, of course, no. The women depicted will always remain beyond your reach and mine; their spiritual stature places them beyond our limited vision. Nonetheless, the Torah presents them for us to learn from their lives. To do so, you must learn to listen and then to step back with the recognition that you have at best heard the echo of their voices.

A Distant Mirror is structured to give you the information presented in the text under the heading, "What Does It Say?" Next, you will find a taste of what the commentators tell you, under the heading, "What Does It Mean?" And finally, essays on practical ways in which you can bring these women into your lives as your role models under the heading, "What Does This Mean for You?" along with true stories of how other women did just that.

Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller, popular teacher, lecturer, and Hamodia columnist, is the author of Battle Plans (with Sara Yocheved Rigler), Return, You Are Here, Let's Face It!, Our Bodies Our Souls, The Balancing Act, This Way Up, and More Precious Than Pearls.

"A Distant Mirror, by Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller, is a guidebook for life, with many wonderful insights and messages for women as well as for men on how to deal with life's various situations.

The book is full of profound insights into the human personality and conveys a tremendous optimism and belief that people can reach their potential for greatness."

- Rabbi Hershel Reichman, President, Naaleh.com

The teachings of the great twentieth-century Jewish thinker Martin Buber empower us to enter a spiritual dimension that often passes unnoticed in the daily routine. In A Year with Martin Buber, the first Torah commentary to focus on his life's work, we experience the fifty-four weekly Torah portions and eleven Jewish holidays through Buber's eyes.

While best known for the spiritual concept of the I-Thou relationship between people, Buber graced us with other fundamentals, including Over Against, Afterglow, Will and Grace, Reification, Inclusion, and Imagine the Real. And his life itself--including his defiance of the Nazis, his call for Jewish-Arab reconciliation, and his protest of Adolf Eichmann's execution--modeled these teachings in action.

Rabbi Dennis S. Ross demonstrates Buber's roots in Jewish thought and breaks new ground by explaining the broader scope of Buber's life and work in a clear, conversational voice. He quotes from the weekly Torah portion; draws lessons from Jewish commentators; and sets Buber's related words in context with Buber's remarkable life story, Hasidic tales, and writing. A wide variety of anecdotal illustrations from Buber as well as the author's life encourages each of us to "hallow the everyday" and seek out spirituality "hiding in plain sight."

You are invited to spend a year with the inspirational words, ideas, and counsel of the great twentieth-century thinker Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, through his meditations on the fifty-four weekly Torah portions and eleven Jewish holidays.

A pioneer of ideas and action--teaching that "Judaism is a civilization" encompassing Jewish culture, art, and peoplehood; demonstrating how synagogues can be full centers for Jewish living (building one of the first "shuls with a pool"); and creating the first-ever bat mitzvah ceremony (for his daughter Judith)--Kaplan transformed the landscape of American Jewry. Yet much of Kaplan's rich treasury of ethical and spiritual thought is largely unknown.

Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben, who studied closely with Kaplan, offers unique insight into Kaplan's teachings about ethical relationships and spiritual fulfillment, including how to embrace godliness in everyday experience, our mandate to become agents of justice in the world, and the human ability to evolve personally and collectively. Quoting from the week's Torah portion, Reuben presents Torah commentary, a related quotation from Kaplan, a reflective commentary integrating Kaplan's understanding of the Torah text, and an intimate story about his family or community's struggles and triumphs--guiding twenty-first-century spiritual seekers of all backgrounds on how to live reflectively and purposefully every day.

Limitless gems of eternal wisdom enticingly sparkle at every destination. Bereshit, a room of locked secrets, contains many doors. Thankfully,millennia of scholars and commentators have handed down hallowed keys for posterity. Utilizing integrated knowledge of the entire Bible coupled with Sinai's Oral Traditions-together the sum total of man's moral and ethical knowledge-Geonim and Rishonim gradually cracked Torah's vaults ajar. A fifteenth century tour de force,Don Yitzchak Abravanel's magnum opus thoroughly revolutionized Biblical exegesis.His works have never been translated from their original Hebrew. Until now.

Abravanel's World of Torah Vayikra volume 2 An outstanding translation of the fascinating commentary by the last of the Spanish greats. Storyline reads as masterful narrative! --Rabbi Berel Wein, Rav, Beit Knesset HaNassi, Jerusalem A major contribution to Torah literature.. --Rabbi Abraham J. Twersky M.D. Author of more than 60 books In the passages that I have seen, he[Zev Bar Eitan] not only makes Abravanel more accessible, but makes him come alive through a lively, contemporary treatment. --Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, prolific and featured writer, Co-Founder of Cross-Currents Rabbi Yitzchak Abarbanel (Abravanel) lived at the end of the time of the Spanish Rishonim and his books reflect his end-of-an-era status. He dutifully surveys the opinions of his predecessors before critiquing them and offering his own brilliantly creative interpretations. Like many Spanish Torah scholars, the Abarbanel had a sustained interest in philosophy, language and the literal meaning of the Bible. Therefore, his Torah commentary in particular is an adventure in Medieval thought, with the Abarbanel mediating a battle between the greatest minds and offering his own substantial contributions. However, while his expansive commentaries are fascinating reading, they are often too long and too technical for the average reader. Zev Bar Eitan has devised a creative way to redeem Abarbanel for the masses. With ample literary talent, Bar Eitan retells the story of the Book of Vayikra based on the Abarbanel s commentary. A careful reader will find many hidden interpretations in the simple prose, the fine details of the story as understood by the Abarbanel. Additionally, Bar Eitan offers tastes of the dramatic philosophical debates that the Abarbanel conducts, replacing the lengthy proofs with a summary accessible to contemporary readers. The result is a unique and exciting trip through Bereishit and its Medieval commentators. --Rabbi Gil Student Jewish Action Summer 2020

Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik (the Rav) was the towering rabbinic thinker of the twentieth century. In addition to his wellspring of Torah knowledge, the Rav taught, wrote and lectured extensively on Chumash. The Rav, however, never wrote a systematic commentary on Chumash, and, until now, the only way to study his interpretation and analysis of Chumash was to search for pertinent material by wading through the Rav's published writings and hard-to-find audio tapes of his lectures and shiurim. Now, for the first time, the Rav's teachings on Chumash have been collected into a published commentary on Sefer Bereishis (The Book of Genesis). Commentary by the Rav on the weekly Haftarah is included. Edited with skill by Dr. Arnold Lustiger, this groundbreaking Chumash, the first volume of a contemplated set of the entire Torah, reflects the Rav's intellectual breadth and depth, his exegetical creativity and the timelessness of his insights. Complete with an English translation of the Torah text, Rashi's commentary and an eloquent and original Torah commentary, the Chumash Mesoras HaRav is perfect for synagogue, home and school use. --Jewish Action, August 2013 About the Author Dr. Arnold Lustiger previously edited Machzor Mesoras Harav on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Before Hashem You Shall Be Purified: Rabbi Joseph B.
